Beyond My Comfort Level II
Boris Matthews, Ph.D., L.C.S.W.
How do we know what is shadow for us? Our reactions to other people (especially our negative reactions) provide a mirror in which we see what we are not. We often condemn in others what we ourselves unconsciously do. We need to raise our awareness and grow into more mature human beings who recognize our best and lesser gifts. That can only be done if we step outside of our "comfort zone."
